I Miss You…

Manquer is a very tricky verb to use mainly for English-speakers. “I miss you” is often translated literally into “je te manque” but it is not right. 

So, to say “I miss you” you should say “Tu me manques”

 

In French,  “to miss someone” is “manquer à quelqu’un” and needs indirect pronouns (me, te, lui, nous, vous, leur) to be used correctly.

But the tricky part is that you have to think the other way round!!

I miss you= You are missed by me= Tu manques à moi= Tu me manques (“à moi” has to be replaced by the indirect pronoun “me”)
